Year 11 Passport to the Prom

This year’s ‘Passport to the Prom’ is now in full swing for all our Year 11 students. The annual initiative is an incentive to encourage our Year 11 students to attend as many revision sessions as they possibly can, combined with excellent school attendance, in this final push towards their exams. We realise that the Year 11 Prom is an exciting milestone in a student’s transition from main school to sixth form and further education. It marks their journey towards adulthood, however, the Prom is not only a celebration of a student’s time at Clacton County High School, but also a reward for the effort and hard work put into achieving their absolute best in their exams.
Over the course of this term, plus the two weeks between the Easter Holiday and the May Day Bank Holiday, our Year 11 students will need to attend a minimum of three maths, three English and three science revision sessions, along with six other subject sessions of their choice; a copy of all the revision sessions are listed on the Passport. In addition, students need to have at least 95% attendance through to their exams, in order to be eligible to purchase a ticket to their Prom. As an additional incentive, students who complete twenty-five revision sessions or more will be entered into a prize draw for some great prizes including; one of fifteen Prom Tickets and one of three Year 11 Passport to the Promprofessional photos on Prom night.
Every Year 11 student should now have their own CCHS Revision Bag packed full of helpful hints and revision material – any student who did not collect their bag at the recent Year 11 Parents’ Evening, can do so from Miss Loosley.
CCHS staff are extremely dedicated; always willing to go the extra mile for their students, they provide after school revision workshops, additional support during school holidays and even at weekends, closer to the exams.
CCHS RevisionStudents should contact their subject teachers to find out more details on the times and dates of any additional sessions, as well as consulting the revision timetable available online within our Revision Microsite.
Parental support is so important in ensuring success and we know our parents are equally supportive of the school. Please encourage your child to make the most of the help available to achieve the best possible grades they can.

It's Behind You – Oh No It’s Not!

It's Behind You – Oh No It’s Not!
Over the festive period, twelve of our talented students took part in the professional pantomime, Peter Pan, at the Princes Theatre. Starring alongside former X-Factor runner-up Marcus Collins, the talented CCHS performers formed a third of the entire chorus line-up.

Split into three teams, the young performers appeared in alternate shows throughout the mammoth twenty-nine show run. This year the Peter Pan story line called for additional youth performers to fill the roles of the children and the Lost Boys – congratulations to Bailey Boyce and Joshua Hough, for their excellent performances as Michael and John Darling.

More Pantomime Success

During the holiday, other talented CCHS students took part in a youth production of Cinderella, at the Westcliff Theatre. The cast of fifty youngsters, all under 18, spent time between Christmas and the New Year, rehearsing before performing to four sell-out audiences. Congratulations to Year 8 student, Charlie, who starred as Buttons, alongside many of our CCHS dancers. Charlie built up a great rapport with the audience and received great feedback for his role.
